Why Wearing Makeup is Important for Self Care March 29 2018, 0 Comments
I've met a lot of women in my life. When you go through the usual oh what do you do for a living and I tell them I am a professional makeup artist and that I have a line of cosmetics and skincare, a familiar line I hear is: "Oh, I NEVER wear makeup." Like somehow NOT wearing makeup has become a badge of honor for them or that they are too busy, stoic and selfless to bother with something so self absorbed and frivolous. I say, don't knock it till you try it. Wearing or not wearing makeup is a personal choice and an interest, of course, and I never force anyone into it. Many salespeople sell by pointing out flaws on a person's face. That's not my style. But if you are one of those women who think there is something wrong with wearing makeup, you're missing out on an affordable luxury that can really make you and your life more joyful. You'll never know how good or much better you can feel with wearing something on your face. There is a product for everyone that can enhance their life if they are open to trying. It is worth finding the right product that can do it for you. It's really ok...it's not a weakness... it's a little luxury in your day that in the grand scheme of things is very inexpensive and enhances your day to day life.
Here are my thoughts about what makeup does for a person, whether it's a young girl, an older woman or even a man. The right makeup product can make you FEEL BETTER about yourself. It just does. For me personally, the ten or fifteen minutes a day I spend putting on my makeup is the only time in the day where I feel like I am doing something for myself. It makes me feel comforted and pampered. It's a ritual that's taken place by women (and some men) for centuries after all. All it takes is one product to give you that little boost to make you feel good about yourself. It could be a boost of darkening and lengthening your lashes with the right mascara to enhance your eyes. It could be a swipe of lipstick or gloss to enhance your mouth that'll whiten your teeth and make you want to smile more. It could be a dab of blush, or bronzer to brighten you up and light up your eyes. I've seen people come to life and light up the room when they use a few of their favorite products. I've seen the transformation for myself when I do makeup on people and when I teach them how to use the right product I give them from my line. The mood lift is sometimes as instantaneous as that morning cup of coffee without the caffeine. It's why I keep doing what I do. I like making people feel good. It gives them joy and it makes me happy to to see it. If you think it's too frivolous, well, that's fine with me.
Wishing you many days filled with joy,
Here's What I Learned after doing Makeup on a Thousand Brides March 10 2018, 0 Comments
Brides have always had a special place in my heart and they always will. Being a professional makeup artist has been my second career but even as an amateur with a special interest in makeup I dabbled in doing wedding makeup for friends and family before it was common to have a beauty glam squad come to do your makeup and hair for your wedding day. While it's true that every bride is unique in her tastes, after doing a thousand brides and bridesmaids in my 17 year plus career in makeup, I've seen a lot of what goes on behind the scenes. Wedding days are more alike than they are different and I've been a part of great days, and some pretty awful stressful out ones where I went straight to a bar to have a drink to calm down. A wedding is a huge life changing event. Even if you think you are going to be a cool, calm and collected bride, come the wedding day morning you may feel emotions that you never knew you had. Here's what I learned and some of my "do"s and don'ts for a happy wedding day start. My wish for every bride on her big day is to have a wonderful happy day from the minute you get up all through the last dance of the evening. These are my suggestions to Make it Go Right!
DO Eat a healthy breakfast ~ even if you don't normally eat breakfast, EAT something with protein in it. It's not the time to diet. What you eat on your wedding day is not going to effect how you look in your dress. You need that fuel to get through the whole day and night. I've seen too many brides faint right before walking down the aisle. They were too nervous to eat or didn't drink enough water and were dehydrated.
If you are getting ready in a hotel or a venue and not in your home, pack a week before and write out and use a checklist. Forgetting something at home that is important to the wedding day such as the license, a bra, shoes, the veil is very common. I've seen too many brides cry and get very upset and then want to run home to get the item. As a makeup artist, having a bride cry unhappy tears while in my makeup chair is also upsetting. If you aren't good at packing or organizing or too time stressed to pack, have a member of your bridal party, your mother, your sister or anyone close to you who is good at to make sure you have what you need. It'll make you calmer and the day will go smoothly.
DO Start two hours earlier than you think you should ~ You won't believe how many disruptions you'll have that day. You'll get calls from people you haven't heard from in years, people will be late and there will unexpected delays and snafus. The time will truly fly that day and you will run out of time and feel stressed and be late if you don't start extra early. You want to avoid this from happening and it happens way too much. It's also a good idea to tell your wedding party to get there earlier to help things stay on schedule.
DO Have lots of food around. People get cranky and anxious when they are hungry or nervous.. Food makes people happier and calmer. Have a variety of foods: fruit, veggies, sandwiches, snack foods, coffee and lots of water ( I need gluten free for me) Happy people means you'll have a smoother start to your wedding day.
DON'T drink too much or stay up too late the night before ~ I can't remember how many times I've had to wake up brides at their hotel room which made the whole wedding day be late because they were hungover or just dragging and tired. It's harder to make someone look fresh and young and pretty when you're dealing with dehydrated skin, red eyes, and a queasy, cranky, tired bride.
DO Keep your favorite people in the world close to you that morning ~ I'd say this is KEY. Anybody who makes you feel supported, loved, protected and wants YOU to be truly happy is who should be with you that day. DON'T invite anyone who who have any angst with as any issues you have with them may get amped up. I've seen too many family fights break out on the wedding day or an underlying tension. Weddings are stressful enough for a bride and the last thing you need to add to the mix is having people's issues of jealousy, divorced parents who don't get along, or sibling rivalry rear it's ugly head. The less people around the better; keep it to 3 or 4 good friends or favorite family at most. The more people around the more personalities and opinions will abound. It's your special day - take control of your getting ready time and keep your circle small and tight.
DO Have extra cash on hand ~ Just a good idea. I've seen too many brides have to stop everything and go to the ATM on the wedding day. Not all vendors want to take checks or credit cards, plus gratuities for exceptional service are always appreciated in cash.
DO Trust your vendors to do the job you hired them to do. If you trusted them to hire them and you confirmed all details and handled the pre-payments, try not to worry and lose sleep about them showing up. They are professionals and they will be there! Offer them food or a drink once they get there. Showing them respect and a little gesture of kindness will go a long way in the extra service and perks you may get.
DO Plan on having the photographer come earlier than they say they will. More times than not, the photographer comes at least a half hour to an hour earlier than they tell. As soon as the photographer comes, the mood will change drastically, believe me. It becomes REAL! The party atmosphere will start to change to OMG! It's crunch time. Instant nerves will appear. So know that going into it. Don't forget to bring your wedding invitation with you. The photographer always wants to shoot that along with your shoes, dress and rings and it's often forgotten and throws a wrench into your plans.
I hope these tips and the wealth of my experience help make your wedding day "behind the scenes" go smoother.
Wishing you love, wishing you a beautiful life!
How To Find Your Beauty Dream Team for Your Wedding April 21 2017, 0 Comments
Blog by Jill Harth
Your wedding day is the one day above any other that your hair and makeup has to be perfect! No other day in your life really has all the attention on YOU. Photographers, attendants and guests will be focused on you, the bride and you will be gazed upon by friends, family and strangers alike. Are you nervous yet? Don’t worry…it’s time to assemble your Beauty Dream Team. I’m going to tell you how and what to look for and watch out for so you can find the best there is.
1) When hiring a hair stylist and make up artist you have to follow your natural instincts.
The hair or make-up trial is where the first impression is made. On first meeting, ask yourself how you feel about this person. Are you comfortable enough with their demeanor to have them spend part of your wedding day with you? Many times, you feel it in the first five minutes. You have to click. Even if they do great hair or makeup, if you are not comfortable in their presence or if you don’t feel you can trust them…don’t use them.
2) Check out his or her style- Is he or she dressed nicely; clean clothes and in good repair, nails and hair clean and manicured. If they’re women, do you like their makeup? Is it nicely applied even if it’s very light or is it vastly overdone at inappropriate times? Does she smell like last night’s party wreaking of smoke and liquor? For example, when I’m doing an early morning wedding at a start time of 5AM, the last thing I want to do is apply a full face of makeup on myself. I do very little, usually in the car right before I start. I want to look nice and kept up, but it’s not about me! It’s about what I can do for you, my bride. That’s what I want you to find for your wedding day…someone with a high degree of caring for what’s right for you.
- During the initial trial, is the conversation centered around you; what you want and don’t want for your wedding look, your wedding plans, your life, YOU! Or are they entertaining you with every detail about their life? It’s different if YOU ask THEM specific questions. But if they are giving you their latest exploits about their date last night, their sex life, their divorce in the works, the fight they had with this or that one, even if you LOVE the work they do on you…think twice about hiring them. Their life may be filled with high drama that may bring you to the big problem I want you to avoid.
4) If you really like the artist’s work and you want to hire them, be sure they write down the exact time, location, your phone numbers and how many people they will need to do. I say write down because I’ve heard too many stories of that information being deleted in computers. Better yet, have them send you an agreement and give them a deposit. By doing so, it shows they take you seriously and WILL ACTUALLY SHOW UP TO DO YOUR WEDDING. Yes, it happens more frequently than you can imagine. Unfortunately those urban legends are true. I can’t tell you how many calls I’ve received from panic stricken brides where their hair or makeup artist has either not shown up or canceled a few days before with incredible excuses. Call them and speak to them a few days before your wedding to go over any last minute details and instructions.
What I want the most for you to look for when getting you’re beauty team together, besides doing hair and makeup that you love and is perfect, be aware of the personality.
A)You like at first impression.
B)Has a style you admire.
C)Is clean about themselves and their beauty tools.
- D) Is prepared with everything they need for the trial.
- E) Is forthcoming about showing photos of their work.
- F) Gives you pricing in writing and if extra charges may apply it is noted.
- G) Has a reputation of reliability.

Jill Harth Beauty to give 7% of all profits from product sales to Fight for Women's Civil Rights January 27 2017, 0 Comments
Some of you may have come to website to support me from my plight with the new President, Donald Trump. TO those who have posted comments and support to me, I THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. It has fuelled my ability to continue to move on from the ordeal.
To those who aren't aware: Briefly put, I filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump or sexual assault and sexual harassment in 1997. It was filed in New York. Ultimately, I pulled the complaint as a condition to settle a breach of contract lawsuit that my employer had against Donald Trump and the Trump Organization. I didn't want to back then but I had to. I was worn down emotionally from the stress of all the damage created from knowing and working with man.I wasn't in good financial shape or independent, either.
But last February, 2016 it was uncovered and posted online by Lawnewz.com. It was a nightmare for me. I felt violated and a painful thing for me personally because I had never told most people about it. I had to keep moving forward with my life post divorce in 1998. To a large extent, I buried deep in my psyche what had happened to me with Trump when I worked with him as an event producer for a company called American Dream Enterprises based in Boca Raton, Florida in 1992. My personality type is that I strive to look at the good in every situation, it not at first or during the event that's happening but definitely afterwards. I'm also a forgiving person and I thought people had the ability to change. In a nutshell, I forgave him and decided to move on. Naively, I thought Trump was that type of person too. After all, I thought we had both moved on and considered him to be on friendly terms with me as he had settled the breach of contract suit. He repeatedly extended the olive branch afterwards. Then comes March, 2016. He speaks to the papers and press and immediately accuses me of lying about all my claims. I did not. He just said what he did to protect his own hide and campaign. Trump or his minions never for one minute thought what the impact his falsehoods would affect me, nor did he care. So, I did various interviews to defend myself. I received some great love and support through emails, comments, social media and other outlets for doing it, but also an intense amount of hate filled diatribes. Damage has occurred to me in many ways.
So, why I am telling you this? After all this and what I've gone through I am forever changed. So here's what I want to do to help others who want to fight back and stick up for themselves who don't have the funds or support to do it. I am going to donate 7% of the profits off all my product sales to various Go Fund Me sites to defend the rights of women in situations as I've face. Right now it's not a lot, but every little bit helps. The more products I sell, the more I can give back.
If you read this all to the end, THANK YOU.
Please feel free to contact me directly to share your story or any questions about products, too.
Wishing you all love, light, and strength.
Here's What Should Be in your Makeup Kit December 14 2016, 0 Comments
No matter your age, there are basic essential cosmetic products every woman should have in her makeup kit. It's important to know how to put your look together and having the right tools and products in it will make it easy and quick to make up your face. I suggest starting a kit with classics that suit and flatter you.
* Moisturizer with SPF: It protects your skin and also forms a soft supple skin. Apply a layer of moisturizer and let it sink in a little.
* Concealer: Select one that matches your skin tone as closely as possible. If it's too light it will bring puffiness. Concealers come in all kinds of formulas. Pick the type with packaging you like. I like the ones with built in brighteners to minimize darkness and puffiness.
* Tinted Moisturizer or foundation: An even complexion makes you look flawless and younger. Pick one that matches your coloring. I suggest a foundation brush for the quickest and best way to apply the foundation. Blend well and go easy on the amount.
*Eyelid Primer: Evens out the eyelids by reducing redness and holds your eyeshadow for all day wear.
*Eyeliner: Defines the eye: A creme gel liner with a brush is the longest lasting and holds in place longest. It takes a little practice but it's worth it. Pencils are very easy to use and you can't go wrong with a black, navy, or dark brown eyeliner.
*Eyebrow Color: Filling in your brows will give you a more youthful look. You can use an eyebrow pencil, or an eyebrow powder. Use one in the color closest to your your natural color or slightly darker.
* Mascara: So important as it makes your eyes look more open and defined. Apply right at the base of the lashes and and wiggle the brush to get very close to the the base of the lashes. Black, Black/Brown or Navy mascara are all perfect.
*Powder: I like a powder compact to keep in your bag to powder your nose throughout the day and to a quick refresh if necessary.
*Blush: Gives a healthy glow to the face and totally lights up your eyes. I suggest a pink or a peachy/pink. They brighten you up and will make you look fresher and prettier instantly.
*Lip Pencil: Outlining your lip will make your lips more fuller and defined . It also keeps the lipstick from feathering. Get one that blends with your preferred lipstick.
*Lipstick or Lipgloss: It balances your face and keeps your lips feeling moisturized and looking fuller.
Next Lesson we'll discuss your brush basics.

Makeup Trial Tips: Some info before you go for your trial. May 10 2014, 0 Comments
It's wedding season here with the arrival of a well deserved and long awaited Spring in the Northeast. Brides are putting the finishing touches on their weddings. One of the best parts of getting married and having a wedding nowadays is how commonplace it is to have your makeup professionally done. It's one of the few times that most women focus on themselves. All eyes will be on the beautiful, blushing bride on the wedding day. Your makeup needs to hold up for twelve hours or more, look fresh and real in person, and of course it has to photograph beautifully. In my nearly fifteen year career as a professional Makeup Artist, I've definitely learned a thing or two about making a Bridal Makeup trial go right. And I can recognize when and why it all goes downhill
Here's whats on my mind after a marathon of trials I've been doing recently. You can call it food for thought.
When you go for a trial, whether it's with me or another artist, it's important to have realistic expectations for yourself. I usually ask a bride-to-be to bring a photo of makeup looks she likes. I like to see the pictures as a point of communication. It's not meant to be an instruction manual for me to duplicate because any photograph I am shown is an unreal image. So much alteration goes into creating a magazine photo. Besides the obvious of retouching and airbrushing, professional lighting and printing perfects an image to unreal proportions. Another obvious element is difference in coloring and bone structure of a model compared to a bride/ subject/ client in my chair. It's so much more than the same hair and eye color. An image is one dimensional. The face in front of me is three dimensional. Bone structure, eye type and structure, skin tone, skin surface, skin type and one's own chemistry. It all needs to be taken into consideration in creating a beautiful face and the art of makeup. Some eye shapes simply don't look good with false lashes applied. That's the truth and the way it is. Sometimes its better to use several coats of mascara. Just because it's very popular and looks great when it fits some models face or your friend's doesn't mean it will look good on you.
It's similar to perfume. One perfume does not smell the same on everybody. One lipstick that looks good on so and so will not look the same on you. Be flexible and open to an Artist's advice. I work with makeup, study formulas, test and practice and have worked on thousands of faces and I am still amazed at how radically different a color will look from the tube to when its on a face. These are the little facts and details that most women don't know and I guess one wouldn't know. A true professional artist knows these facts but very few share them. It's so much easier to choose a few different face palettes or color looks and do the same look on rotation for clients. Not for me. That's cheating a client out of a real experience and knowledge. This is why my trials are two hours plus. Any less time on a makeup trial you are getting a "fast food" version. I am letting you know the truth. Sometimes it's true that you pay for what you get when it comes to makeup. Sometimes you are not. Know the difference!
The bottom line about trials to me is this: Let a Makeup Artist know what you're preferences are for your wedding day look but don't be locked into it. When I do a makeup trial and I see what a client wants is just not working on her and I know its not looking good, I tell her and change it. Sometimes I just adapt it according to what the makeup needs to be to bring out her beauty, photograph well and be long lasting. Most times she loves it. Other times and these are the times when I know that there was no "click" between us, is when she is disappointed that I didn't make her look just like Taylor Swift, or Brooklyn Decker, or Eva Langoria, or whoever is hot that month in the media. It's impossible to do that unless I am working on Taylor Swift, Brooklyn Decker, etc.
Some advice to a bride: Don't fall into a cookie cutter look that's currently on trend. Think timeless, elegant, soft, seamless. Think customized makeup that makes you look like your best you've ever looked. Less is more, too. Most fiancé's will agree with me, too.
Until next time...
Yours in beauty,

JEWEL EYES ~ Aquamarine is the Birthstone for March March 08 2014, 0 Comments
Wear your lucky birthstone color this month on your eyes. I started my Jewel Eyes Collection. Here's how to wear the eye look for March babes.
Aquamarine is a very calming blue, reminiscent of the Carribbean sea. I find that wearing my birthstone in jewelry gives me a feeling of having a lucky day and I have feel good vibes all day from it. So why should it be just minerals and gemstones?
I say wear these colors on your eyes. Here is how to really rock an Aqumarine Eye look for all you March beautiful women.
First start with clean eyes and a dab of Natural Eye Primer on each eye. It keeps eyeshadow staying on longer and keeps the color pure.
Then swipe your Aquamarine shadow all across your eyelid. Just sweep it from the inner eye up to the crease and outward.
Smudge the color in with your finger or a brush to let it blend in and soften a little bit.
Next apply a thin line of Coal Powderliner Pencil along lash line. Concentrate on getting it as close to the roots of the lashes as possible.
Next comes a nice coat of black mascara. Set brows in place or fill in with the Browblender.
Liptoxyl Lip Sheers March 06 2014, 0 CommentsI call it March Madness. Living in the northeast, my lips are always dry and kind of shriveled up, until I apply LipToyl Lip Sheers to my lips. Instantly my lips look and feel larger, plumped up and moisturized and have a gorgeous sheer glisten. I wear it over lipstick or just as a slick of gloss. They never go on sale. Now's your chance to scoop them up and try all the colors. Plus one of the ingredients is diamond dust, and diamonds are always a girls best friend. ~ Jill

It's Bridal Trial Season January 20 2014, 0 Comments
Doing three different makeup trials this weekend has given me a great refresher on some advice for newly engaged brides. If you are engaged from the holidays and you are having a Spring, Summer or Fall wedding now is the time to step up or even start an effective skincare system if you haven't kept up.
It's a great start to make sure your skin is in the best shape it can be for your big Wedding Day. A few very effective products can take your skin from dull, dry, broken out to smooth, hydrated and clear.
I tell nearly every bride that they need to start or step up their exfoliating regime. It make the skin so much smoother and will make your wedding day makeup go on smooth. The better the skin, the closer the Airbrush Makeup will adhere to the skin making for a Flawless Face. Micro Derm Scrub from my line of skincare does the job safely and pleasantly. The Micro beeds are the same as used in a full Microdermabrasion treatment. Now with my product, you can give yourself a home Microdermabrasion treatment.
I suggest exfoliating your skin in the morning.
~If your facial skin is oily but not broken out, I recommend using it three times a week.
~ If you have combination skin, two to three times a week, depending on how sensitive your skin is.
~ Very dry skin needs at least two times a week.
The key is to be very gentle. Go easy but concentrate on making a rotating motion all around your face. Don't forget your neck. Then follow up with a serum and/or a moisturizer. Of course, I recommend my Vita Firm Serum and Hydrating Night Creme. (I use the Hydrating Night creme in the daytime, too. Disregard, the "Night" part.
Even if you don't try my Micro Derm Scrub, please don't use an exfoliating using products with nuts and seeds. They are too large and course and can scratch, redden and irritate your skin. Some of the so called "top selling" products may be inexpensive and popular but they are not kind to skin.
Next steps coming in my next blog.
Wishing you love, wishing you beauty

Cold Weather Beauty Tricks January 07 2014, 0 CommentsHere's a great new way to moisturize. I've been recently moisturizing and hydrating my skin with this new technique. I got turned on to the natural moisturization of Coconut Oil. I found it in my local market. I keep it in the shower. I cleanse my body with Dove soap. Its simple, non- irritating and non-drying. After I rinse, I add a big handful of coconut oil (it gets more solid in the shower). I massage it all over my body and let it soak in in the steamy water. Then step into a towel and gently towel off. Your skin will be soft and smooth all day and night. It's all natural and very inexpensive. It is unscented, too.

Daily Beauty Tips & Tricks January 05 2014, 0 Comments
Here in the Northeast we are in the beginning of winter. I've come to welcome and enjoy January as my time to do a beauty reboot of sorts. I have more time to rest. Sleep is key in staying healthy and looking good.
I have more time to spend taking care of and pampering my skin and hair.
Here's one beauty regime I've been using for YEARS. I started as teenager doing it. I love how it makes my skin look and feel. It's soothing and gets my skin ultra-clean.
Jill Harth DETOX HomeFacial
Boil a large pot of water. Mix in 3 tablespoons of SWISS KRISS Herbal Laxative.I buy it at my health food store or a store like Whole Foods or Fairway. Yes, this box of herbal mix is unbeatable in drawing out impurities from the pores. Turn off heat and let simmer for a couple of minutes.
Cover your head with a towel to form a tent. Keep your head about 8-10 inches from the hot steam and let the steam touch your face for five to ten minutes. It should be warm but not burning your skin.
After, wash your face and use a gentle exfoliant. After your face will feel so much cleaner and clearer. Remember, don't pick your face. Resist the urge and think of your finger tips as poison. Picking can cause scarring and trust me, you don't want to do that.
If you like masks, now is the time to apply one that suits you. I don't have a facial masque in my line as of yet but what I like to use is a golden oldie. Who hasn't tried Queen Helene Swiss Julep Mask? Its a classic green clay mask. It dries in about twenty minutes and further draws out and loosens clogged pores.
Try it and let me know how it works for you.

Jill Harth, The After Shot November 26 2013, 0 Comments
Here I am AFTER! Big difference, right? Using the right products, mine of course,(lol) and some know how go a long way toward putting your best face forward. I feel so much better when I have makeup on than when I go out in public (rarely) with no makeup on. The world is a different place to me with makeup on. WIthout makeup, I feel almost invisible. It does wonders for my self esteem and how I present myself all day. A few minutes a day is all you need to perk up your day, your life and your look. Let me teach you my secrets.
Real Life Before and Afters starting with Yours Truly... November 26 2013, 0 CommentsHere I am with not a drop of makeup. Then's there me AFTER. I look so much healthier, brighter and put together with the makeup. It changes how I feel for the rest of the day. When I use the products I feel its ME TIME. It's the time spent really caring and being good to yourself. I have been using my Anti-Aging Skin care steadily for twelve years and counting. I'm 51now, (eek) now, but I'm frequently told I look t least 10 Years Younger, Isn't that what we all want at any age? I continuously get compliments on my skin and so will you. My Anti-Aging Skin Care Regime works. You have to make the commitment NOW for maintaining your beauty. I truly believe women can be beautiful at any age if you make an effort to practice great skin habits all throughout your life. I am living proof it works. Start now. There is no time like the present and if you don't take care of yourself nobody else will do it for you. ~ Jill
